Imposter Syndrome: Identifying and Overcoming Imposter Moments (or: yes, you really Do belong here!)

27 January 2022 | 18.00u - 19.00u

Imposter Syndrome is common among high achievers, and occurs when people are unable to recognize their own role in their successes. Too often, those with Imposter Syndrome chalk up successes to luck, timing, or computer error; agonize over the smallest flaws in their work; and fear that others will unmask them as frauds or imposters. In this interactive workshop, participants will understand what Imposter Syndrome is, recognize where it has affected their thinking, and reflect on how imposter moments may be impacting their academic or professional lives. Participants leave with a set of strategies to overcome such moments moving forward.

Over the last several years, this Imposter Syndrome workshop has been conducted by both selection and invitation in a variety of venues including the Arizona Women in Higher Education Conference, the inaugural University of Arizona Inclusive Excellence Symposium, and multiple diversity speaker series.


Dr. Mika Galilee-Belfer has a PhD in Higher Education and a JD (law degree), both from the University of Arizona (UA). She currently works in faculty affairs with the UA's College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. She is a past Co-Chair of the UA’s Strategic Planning and Budget Advisory Committee, and has served on the UA’s Provost Council, President’s Cabinet, and Commission on the Status of Women. Her work is rooted in the conviction that inclusive decision-making is essential to legitimate and effective governance and administration. Her battle with Imposter Syndrome is ongoing.
